Drinking the semester away? Sharing a bottle of wine with your girlfriend, waiting for Chad to text you? Do you have an alcohol problem? Do I have a drinking problem? Do something productive with your empty glass bottles!
About 2 years ago I discovered bottle cutting the way most people discover the most random shit – procrastination via the Internet. Anyway, it’s a really cool way to upcycle (ew I sound like a hipster) that empty bottle of Grey Goose you puked over, while trying to impress that hot chick in the tight dress. There are plenty of bottle cutters on the market if you do a simple Google search. The one I have pictured is called a Kinkajou. It looks the coolest and has a quirky name to it. It’s a really simple process:
-Cut a score line into the glass (that’s a fancy way of saying cut the glass with the tool)
-Then alternate pouring boiling water and cold water onto the score, shocking the glass and cutting it into two pieces.
-After that, sand the edges (there’s 3: the inside, outside, and middle) so you don’t cut yourself. Be safe and sand well because I don’t want to see anybody crying to me that they cut themselves.
Depending on how fine you are willing to sand your bottle down, you can reuse the cut bottle in so many ways: you can make a lighting fixture, store your kitchen utensils (shown in the picture), make an ashtray, get some sexy candles going, or, most importantly, drink more alcohol! Yay! The possibilities are limited to your imagination.
I had a few wine bottles saved to cut, so I just went to town on ‘em. I’m taking a curious poll: Do you prefer red wine or white wine? Both? Neither? Comment your thoughts!
